A local individual is facing charges after assaulting a youth on Tuesday, Apr. 4, 2023.

According to a release from Kingston Police, the victim, a youth, was walking with friends in the east end of the city at approximately 2:34 p.m. and was confronted and threatened by an adult over an alleged issue with another youth.

“When the youth returned home and his father learned of the incident, the two of them drove to the residence of the accused with hopes of peacefully resolving the conflict,” Kingston Police said. “The accused immediately began yelling and threatening the victim a second time. As the victim and his father attempted to leave the accused approached, punched their vehicle, and then reached in grabbing the victim’s hair and pulling his head causing it to strike the inside of the passenger door.”

The father contacted Kingston Police, and the accused was subsequently arrested by police and transported to headquarters where they were released on conditions with a future court date.

According to the release, a 22-year-old local individual was charged with uttering threats to cause bodily harm and assault.
